JNS.org – Israel’s ambassador to the UN praised the recently announced appointment of the international body’s next secretary general.

Danny Danon said he hopes that under Antonio Guterres, “The UN will act in the spirit of its founding principles as a fair body able to differentiate between good and evil and will end its obsession with Israel…[and] this change in leadership will bring an end to the organization’s hostility toward the Jewish state.”
